Disorganized, but an incredible knowledgeable and passionate teacher whose classes are always interesting, if only because of his somewhat...unconventional sense of humour (satirical and mocking, a little racist but isn't actually serious). His exams may seem difficult at first but there's an infallible formula to acing them : memorize everything and write down as much as you can. However, they are lengthy and the time restraint can be stressful. Debate simulations are a pain in the ass.

he knows his stuff but he often forgets and the only way to get a question right is to write the same (correct) answer over and over again in the space he gives you, but he always goes over everything in class and its always in the textbook

He is totally unfair. He's nice if you're on his good side (which is unpredictable) but he picks favourites and if you're not one of them, no matter what you do, it's wrong. His tests are really hard and I have not enjoyed his class.
I wish you luck if you get him for socials...

Mr. Latimer was a great teacher. Once, I left a question blank and he said my worksheet lacked detail. I quickly copied my friend before he checked again. He said I had lots of detail. U WOT M8

I had him in Grade 8 and he was okay. He had very difficult exams and didn't really explain everything. Good luck if you get him.

I am so thankful that Mr. Latimer was my teacher last year. He makes history that much more exciting and his classes are so engaging. His teaching and class activities are effective, and he recognizes hard work and it reflects in the mark.

Almost has a split personality, can be foolish and disorganized, but is a smart and well informed teacher. Depending on you, you can either like him or hate him.

He gives a lot of marks for homework, and his tests are not as challenging as they're made out to be. He isn't afraid to say what's on his mind, which is both good and bad, depending on who you are..

If you can write a lot about nothing, you should be fine. Typing your work also helps, as long as there is a lot written.

Awesome teacher. He made me decide to go into History in U. He teaches social issues w/o personal bias, which may sound easy but it's not, in today's world. He makes everything so interesting, sometimes you just wish you could listen to him talk all day. His teaching methods make you remember 90% of the stuff that you need to know. He's a bit of a weird person, and enjoys making fun of students, but I think he's the coolest and most competent teacher I've ever had =)

He's not a bad teacher. He is pretty mean to bad students though, but nice to the good ones. He doesn't check your homework so well, you can just write and write and write, and you will get a good mark. Its also good to type your work, he likes that a lot. He isn't to hard, and he is pretty clear, but he isn't always to helpful. He lets you watch a lot of movies though =] Although they are usually very boring... at least you aren't working! Oh by the way, you actually learn, you don't just get piled with hw
